Mobilising leaders to be architects of inclusion is pivotal in fostering inclusive workplaces. Leaders are the architects of the immediate environment within which teams daily operate. Their example sets the tone in the workplace and plays a crucial role in shaping the climate and culture of a team. Developing Leaders to be Inclusive equips them with the skills to understand and engage with diverse team members, recognize and mitigate biases, and foster an environment where all team members can thrive.
Mobilizing leaders to be inclusive requires a strategic approach that combines education, empowerment, and accountability. It begins with providing leaders with comprehensive training that not only covers the basics of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB), but also delves into the nuances of unconscious biases and cultural competencies. This education should be paired with opportunities for leaders to engage in open dialogues and self-reflection, helping them understand their own perspectives and biases. This is critical since being an inclusive leader requires both a personal and a professional journey.
